Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have added a second UK date, after their London show sold-out within hours.

As previously reported, the band are due to play their first live shows since 2005 this May, as part of a European tour.

Cave will now play London’s Hammersmith Apollo on May 8 as well as already announced May 7.

The band’s first single ‘Dig, Lazarus, Dig!’ is set for release on February 18, preceding the band’s fourteenth studio album of the same name which follows on March 3.

The single will be available on limited edition 7″, CD and as a download.
The B-side features a brand new Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds track ‘Accidents Will Happen’.

The band are also due to appear at New York’s Plug Awards, taking place at Terminal Five. They will perform as a group for the first time since 2005, as well as picking up the Impact Award for Cave’s influence on the independent music community.
